Along the south coast of the island, in the historic town of Oistins, is this lovely beach which in fact is two beaches separated by a jetty.
At the western end is a small cove. Despite its proximity to a busy road, the beach is surprisingly tranquil thanks to the tropical shrubs lining the beach which muffle the road noise. Here you can bathe in shimmering turquoise waters or soak up the sun on the sandy shores.
At low tide, you can extend your beach walk to the west onto Welches beach, a stunning beach that is one of the best on the south coast. Surfer's Cafe overlooking Oistins beach is a fantastic spot for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
On the eastern side of the jetty is the extension of Oistins beach. This is located directly behind the Bay Garden, where the popular Oistins Fish Fry is held. This is an absolute must-do when visiting the island!
The waters here are generally calm, with some swells and the occasional choppy seas.
Just to the east of this section of the beach is the popular Miami beach.
